The Mechanic - Oil Painting Demonstration with Donato Giancola

Join Spectrum Gold and Silver Medal winner Donato Giancola in his Brooklyn studio for three days as he creates his space masterpiece, The Mechanic,  in oils and traditional media.

The DVD begins with Donato’s approach to photographic reference and models, as well as methods used to add a high degree of realism and detail to his imagery. Work on the actual oil painting showcases the delicate subtleties of portraiture and eye-popping illusions of his signature metallic surfaces.

Throughout the video Donato generously passes on his decades of professional experience - from concept design, conventions and exhibitions - and ends the film by encouraging the viewer to build upon his own accomplishments.
